According to reports from AS, the Brazilian national team setup are patiently monitoring Carlo Ancelotti’s future and how he ends the season with Real Madrid. He is one of the best-placed candidates to take over as the Selecao manager, but the move will boil down to his availability.

Over his two stints at Real Madrid, the Italian tactician has won it all. Just last season, he guided Los Blancos to the La Liga title and the UEFA Champions League and even won the FIFA Club World Cup earlier this year.

Yet, the standards and expectations in Madrid are unbelievably high. A period of poor form from the Merengues‘ saw them lose out on the Spanish Super Cup, fall 12 points behind Barcelona in La Liga and lose in the first leg of the Copa Del Rey. Ancelotti, thus, is now under pressure.

The Real Madrid administration are clear that the coach’s future will completely depend on the results at the end of the campaign. If Ancelotti can guide his side to at least one major trophy, he could live to see another season in Madrid. Else, the Merengues will pull the trigger.

With the league out of their hand, the cup and the Champions League remain the only fronts the team can push for silverware. In any case, glory on either front is easier said than done.

If the tactician leaves Madrid for the Brazilian National Team in June, the management see Thomas Tuchel, Jurgen Klopp, Raul Gonzalez, Mikel Arteta and Zinedine Zidane as potential replacements.

Earlier this week, Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson spoke about the possibility of Ancelotti taking over the reins for the Brazilian National team saying,

“I spoke to Casemiro, Vinicius, and Militao. There’s a big chance that Ancelotti becomes the coach of Brazil.”

It remains to be seen what the future holds for the Italian tactician and whether he ends up taking over the reins at the Brazilian national team.

Following a difficult season with troubles in La Liga and the Champions League preventing Real Madrid from retaining their crowns, Los Blancos move towards a transformative summer, full of innovations.

Real Madrid managed to clear plenty of unwanted figures at the club, with a huge relief on the wage bill. However, with an array of exits, the squad has contracted and thus replacements are being inquired.

Apart from the high-profile departure of Karim Benzema, fringe players have also bid their farewell.

Among those names is Mariano Diaz, who was Madrid’s backup striker prior to his withdrawal. Several names have been put on the table to fill his absence as the club largely aim to address their lack of depth.

According to Arancha Rodriguez (via RM4Arab), Leeds United striker Rodrigo Moreno is one of the names gaining consensus in the Madrid hierarchy. Moreover, Joselu has also been considered as a viable alternative.

The two favourites to replace Mariano have proven to be important figures for their clubs as both strikers maintain a starting role.

Playing for Espanyol, Joselu ended the La Liga campaign as the third top scorer, only behind Benzema and Lewandowski. Considering Espanyol’s relegation, such a feat looks even more impressive. The Spaniard secured 19 goals in all competitions.

On the other hand, Rodrigo Moreno recorded 16 goals last season across all competitions. Similar to Joselu’s case, the Spanish international also suffered relegation with Leeds, in spite of his good numbers.

With both players offering adequate output in struggling sides, Real Madrid’s interest is practical. Moreover, considering both Espanyol and Leeds were relegated, their asking price will undeniably lower, which enables the Merengues to sign one of the two targets at a more convenient rate.

It is claimed that Rodrigo has a release clause worth €3.5 million which Los Blancos would have to trigger to sign him from Leeds United.

It now remains to be seen whether Carlo Ancelotti & co. go after the former Valencia man or move for Joselu instead.
